Had I not snagged this baby this week I'd have been right there with you!

Everything else i loved on the Dreamcast has been ported, Sonic Adventure 1&2, Jet Set Radio are all on the PS3. There is Soul Calibur, but SC2 Outshines everything about it.

Sadly my Dreamcast is rather yellow... I just wish there wa a setup to HDTV that was extortonate - Bu then I guess that is why this release IS such a big deal.

+ 2 Extra copies on disc, 2x Shenmue HD copies & backed the documentary - I'm in this with you!

I cannot sell also my DC, i have too much souvenirs with this console. I use it as an emulation machine also, that's my favorite console with the Sega Saturn.

And the space issue...the Dreamcast is so small when you compare it to the Xbox or PS3.

I actually sold mine the minute I first heard of the Shenmue HD rumours. How long ago was that!? I expected them for PS3..

Can you play Seaman on anything besides an actual Dreamcast? Didn't think so. [-(

When I die I'll be buried with my Sega Dreamcast, my VGA-Box and a 17 inch CRT monitor. And Shenmue, of course.

Yeah this is great news. It was seeing this today that got me back to the 'Dojo! Can take or leave console versions, but seeing that it's coming to Steam is a miracle. If you buy it there, you will have it for life - throughout each PC you go through. PS4 and XO are getting long in the tooth. In five years you'll be going "Remember that awesome Shenmue HD on PS4?". Get it on Steam and you'll still have it.

There's a name that I haven't seen in a while.
I'm certainly getting the PS4 and a PC version for a few reasons. Future compatibility on PC is one. Me and someone else here will also want to play the game as soon as it gets released. Besides that we collect Shenmue stuff.
About selling my Dreamcast, I don't sell consoles in general but I also got it signed by Yu last year so I'm certainly keeping it for that reason alone.

OP, you should probably wait until the remasters are actually out, and confirmed to be superior in every way to the Dreamcast originals before selling those off.

Nah, it represents too much joy for me. I have a broken one on display and a working one packed away that I barely use. We still have Project Justice: Rivals Schools 2 exclusive to DC as well as the original console versions of Powerstone 1 and 2. Also lots of beautiful jank like confidential mission and plenty of 3D beat-em-ups history has forgotten.

I won't sell mine because i feel Dreamcast still has some software im interested in and emulation for it still isn't to my liking. Is interesting though seeing people on this topic that value the hardware and others who value the software no matter where its located. I'm probably on the first camp but i might budge and sell or get rid of my DC once emulation improves since my DC is really being a pain lately with disc reading issues and im not the type to keep a non working console around on display.

Won't sell mine as it is the Shenmue packaged one. Besides, even though Shenmue 1 will no longer be an exclusive for the system, there are others like Berserk Guts' Rage and Illbleed which I simply adore and can't be played anywhere else outside emulators.
